Hello and welcome to the Forums

I can't help with the valuation, but would like to let you know that the other 5 posts that you posted asking for input have been removed.

I was thinking the same thing. I believe these have a following but they need to be much better shape then what you started with. Depending how much love and effort you want to put into this could be a really great looking bike but you will likely be upside down on it.

It is the middle of winter in most of the country plus it is Saturday so it may take awhile to get reply when posting at midnight.

I was at a bike show a couple of years ago where one of the participants had a showroom condition aluminum Silver King. They definitely have a following, but I rode it around the parking lot and thought the ride was disconcertingly flexy.

I have no idea what the value of the OP's bike would be in its current condition.

That pile of rust has some value. As is probably at least 200.
If you part it you can make 350 easy. (If you can take it apart and no broken parts)
Try "The Cabe" or "Rat rod bikes" for sale it, but first make your homework: check the prices for the parts on these sites and ebay too.

looks like he sand blasted and silver painted the pile of rust, how much does that hurt the value?

There are people who are leaving the bike in the rain to become crusty-rusty.
There are rat rod builders who need one/ some parts to make a unic bike.
There are people who are reconditioning the parts (chroming, painting...) like new.
You need to find them. There are all over the country.
